Carlisle & Cumbria Artists

Carlisle & Cumbria Artists


Peter Street,


The group consists of up to 90 amateur and professional artists and crafts workers and every year since 1968 an exhibition has been held. This is the 49th!

The exhibition will start with a preview evening on Tuesday 25 July and run from Wednesday 26 July to Sunday 6 August.

New artists exhibit each year. The selection process takes part every April. Artists who wish to be considered must submit four pieces of work and the entire C&CA committee forms the Selection Committee. Individual voting takes place and the votes are counted; applicants must receive more than 50% of the votes to be accepted.

This year’s exhibition hopes to raise funds for Carlisle Cathedral and Blood Bikes Cumbria Community.
